They managed to solve the issue in less than a day, "for which I am very thankful," in the words of my favorite wizard. Hoping it will get here in the next couple of weeks. So grateful they're so helpful there.

    Good to hear!

      The shadowfax had the same issue with the back legs stress cracks i was surprised when they delivered arwen in a similar stance to shadowfax i thought she would be 2 at back down with 1 up 1 down at the front like in the movie
      would have been so much better too if frodo coukd have been displayed or removed too

        I think you need to start your own collectibles company which specialises on stuff with switch out parts.

          Arwen should be arriving this week! I must say hearing about some of these QC issues has me a little worried. But I know Weta Customer Service is second to none so I know I will be alright in the long run, just all the mucking around if there is something wrong would be annoying.

                Well Arwen arrived and shes gorgeous but she has a broken scabbard. When I lifted her out if the tissue I was so busy checking out the legs. Then my heart broke a bit when I looked down at the tissue wrap and saw the piece sitting there. I did notice that the taped styro box wasnt closed tight so guessing when the lid went on she wasnt seated properly and was smushed and it snapped.
                I’m going to contacting Weta to see what can be done. Its a clean break but honestly for $750 (with shipping) she should be perfect.
                Another day in the life of a collector

                  It saddens me to read so many negatieve stories about this statue (regarding broken arrivals) Hoping that all of you get a proper replacement soon enough. Considering myself very happy that I received a perfect one.

                    Thanks AH. Until the last year I had great luck with my orders.
                    Guess the streak had to end eventually. My MOS arrived and could not be seated in the base. Statue was perfect but the base holes were a millimeter off so wouldn't seat. Thankfully Weta did a full exchange.
                    Now just waiting to hear back to see what can be done for poor Arwen.
                    Thinking Im just bad luck with the riders.

                        Sorry to hear that Janet. It sure is a let down when you spend so much and are so excited to have it arrive to see something like this when you open it. 100mph to 0 in a heartbeat. I hope it all gets sorted out soon.

                          This is getting me nervous as I have 2 Arwen statues on the way. What chance do I have of both being flawless?

                            She has arrived!!!!! And she is brilliant! Not without a couple of painting flaws that I can live with.

                            I have done a very quick video, quality is ordinary as made on my phone but hope anyone who is on the fence can get a good feel for the statue. Personally my wife and I love it. Great job Jane Wenley and everyone involved!

                                      Cheers guys! I am really looking forward to getting the Ringwraith to go with her. In my opinion she is well worth picking up if you are on the fence.
